llegal alien families received nearly $1.3 billion in Los Angeles County welfare money during 2015 and 2016, nearly one-​quarter of the amount spent on the county’s entire needy population.

The data was obtained from the county Department of Public Social Services -- which is responsible for doling out the benefits -- and gives a snapshot of the financial costs associated with sanctuary and related policies.

The sanctuary county of Los Angeles is an illegal immigration epicenter, with the largest concentration of any county ​in the nation, according to a study from the Migration Policy Institute. ​The county also allows illegal immigrant parents with children born in the United States to seek welfare and food stamp benefits.

Robert Rector, a Heritage Foundation senior fellow who has written extensive studies on poverty and illegal immigration, said the costs represent “the tip of the iceberg.”

And almost all of it ended up in Walmart's bank accounts.

I'm sure that a lot of it was sent to Mexico.

I'm sure for some, their original plan was to go to the usa and (earn, get) money and send it back home. A noble idea. But what I've seen personally is illegals adapting to the consumer lifestyle and buying cars, iphones, and whatever, many times with easy credit. Things that they always "thought" they wanted. That way, if and when they return to mexico, they arrive as a "success story". A nice newish pick-up truck, iphone, nice clothes, etc. Plus many have families in the usa and their income doesn't stretch far enough, even with handouts. I would guestimate that less than 5% of their income is sent to mexico. But that doesn't fit the narrative.

That would be France under President de Gaulle, handing Algeria to terrorists and importing Muslims from North Africa. The French are still paying to import Muslims from MENA countries.

Walmart, with it's PACs and political power is not going to accept any reductions in welfare/EBT payouts. For those that would like to eliminate govt handouts to illegals (most who actually work or at least try), would they be happier if they bumped up the welfare/EBT for "baby mamas" and their lazy loser men?

Very interesting you could almost think illegal aliens are receiving welfare, and most fox watches probably do, but it is not illegal aliens whom the money is for.

I wonder, do stories likes these, heard by those who don't understand English so well, make more illegals want to come to America.

Possibly true, since the Merkel invitation did come later.
